A monthly letter from the desk of Sarah Fejfar

Hey there

Happy February to you!

I hope your January was filled with progress and fun. I feel like I blinked and it was over!

My favorite adventure was a 4.5-mile hike on Cape Falcon in Oswald West State Park. There’s such a feeling of accomplishment after doing hard things. The views down the Oregon Coast were sublime. I am in awe that we get to live here and share these experiences as a family.

The most memorable adventure though, goes to the time we went sledding on Mt. Hood and it took 6.5 hours to get home vs. 1.5… traffic on a sunny Sunday; omg.  Glad we had a good audiobook to listen to!

All that said, I’m curious…

What did you learn last month?

Here are a few of my January learnings:

  •  Expansive, Abundant Thinking: On all our weekend adventure road trips, we’ve been listening to Harry Potter via Audible, and this quote from book 5 caught my ear in January: “The thing about growing up with Fred and George," said Ginny thoughtfully, "is that you sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.” I’ve really been trying to take that to heart this month as I take on more responsibilities within my business.

    (As an aside, I did not expect to love and be in awe of the Harry Potter series, but wow, it is incredible! At one point this month I shouted, “my goodness! How does she (J.K. Rowling) have all this detail in her head! It’s amazing! And my kiddo (10) immediately remarked with a huge smile: “Mom, how do you have your whole business in your head!” What a great reminder that there are people who need us on our A-game. Our loved ones are people watching us, looking up to us, waiting in the wings to cheer us on and celebrate with us when we win.)

  •  New Tools: it’s been fun to learn new tools to help on my podcasting journey. My favorite has been moving from Zoom to Riverside.fm to record my interviews. It records locally in a Google Chrome browser before uploading over the internet, so the video and audio quality doesn’t disintegrate, it also allows for live markers (for ease of editing,) and live streaming! Hooray for ROI stacking!

  •  Misogi: One of my favorite mentors to learn from is Jesse Itzler.  His adventure/endurance events inspire me, especially 29029 Everesting. That aside, he teaches an annual time blocking ritual inside his Big A$$ Calendar Club membership program.  One of the aspects is planning a misogi.  Jesse describes it like this: “The notion around the misogi is, you do something so hard 1 time a year, that has an impact on the other 364 days of the year.”  It’s essentially a year-defining thing, like launching a podcast or running a marathon.  It’s made me think and I thought you might love to ponder it as well!

What are you working on this month?

Here’s what I’m working on in February:

  •  Content Rhythm: I’m working on getting into the groove of producing a weekly podcast and developing the SOPs for the work so that I can be as efficient as possible and can hire a team to assist in the very near future.  Lots to learn!

  •  Client Projects: I’ve got a virtual event I’m helping to produce that has a fashion show component and that’s a first for me. I’m excited to try something new!  (I secretly love how every event holds a new challenge to figure out.)

  •  High-Performance Habits: I’ve got a lot on my plate this month and I’m working to keep my focus on the daily practices that keep me at my best, like workouts, water, meditation, and journaling.

And there you have it, my February update for you. Just thought I’d share and keep in contact.

I hope this note finds you and your loved ones happy and healthy.

Make it an outstanding February!

Warm Regards,
